Publisher's Summary

In August 1944, five years after the start of World War II, the people of Warsaw, armed with just a few guns and gasoline bombs, rose up against the German occupation of their city. The uprising was meant to last just 48 hours. Instead, it went on for two months. A quarter of a million people were killed and the Polish capital was razed to the ground. It was one of the great tragedies of World War II, and yet it is rarely talked about outside Poland. This documentary tells the story of the Warsaw Uprising from the point of view of those who were there.Producers: Julia Rooke and Maria Balinska

God Bless them all !!!

I was born in Poland and for me this is especially vulnerable topic , Knowing from History that Poland always fights for her freedom even a "loosing battles" That is only one thing to say ---

"Peace is a precious and a desirable thing. Our generation, bloodied in wars, certainly deserves peace. But peace, like almost all things of this world, has its price, a high but a measurable one. We in Poland do not know the concept of peace at any price. There is only one thing in the lives of men, nations and countries that is without price. That thing is honor."
" Bog Honor Ojczyzna " the motto of Poles !!
